3D software model can be constructed to improve the paper prototype to make it more durable and realistic.
A demonstration of 3D technology can show the students the potential for further evolving a low-fidelity paper prototype into a high-fidelity 3D prototype that can be more readily transformed into injection moulding component for manufacturing use.
B. 流動應用程式和網絡編程 (App and Web Programming)
Most solutions to problems may have a software component that relies on the web or an app to process, collect, and distribute information.
The programming demonstration can inspire the students to code, preparing them for future STEM education.
C. 微控制器、感應器與致動器 (Micro-controller, Sensors, and Actuators)
Micro-controller, sensors, and actuators are basic components to form a circuit for robotic control and the building of smart devices and objects.
By combining 3D printed objects with micro-controller, sensors, and actuators to formulate a prototype, the students can further program it to behave more intelligently to empower people in their daily life.
